Tanya Jones and Joe Abbruscato

Scholarly essays are sought for a collection on the "dark/gothic" fairy tale motif in children's and young adult literature. One of the most popular and long standing traditions in literature for youth, fairy tales have always had elements of fantastical horror, dark motifs, and other Gothic themes built into them. Cannibalism, murders, despair, rape, kidnapping, reincarnations, broken families and many other horrific elements are to be found in these stories. Countless experts insist that their inclusion was, and still is, vital to the growth and maturation of the child reader. The melding of the traditional fairy tale and Gothic literature themes help the reader not only to see the positive aspects of life, but the darker side as well.

[UPDATE] Exploring Suburban Narratives in Literature, Film and Television

contact email: 

From Revolutionary Road to American Beauty and Desperate Housewives, some of the most popular works of fiction, television and film are those that focus in on the 'ordinariness' of suburban living. In drawing on this framework, these works expose the nature of human desperation, the values attached to American patriotism and the anxieties faced in adjusting to modern living. This panel will seek to question why suburban-based narratives have proven to be so successful within mainstream popular culture. Is it perhaps because we as readers/ viewers find a certain liberating accessibility in experiencing a social reality which reflects so closely on our own?

"Making Sacrifices": Visions of Sacrifice in American and European Cultures

Tuesday, September 4, 2012 - 8:23pm
full name / name of organization: 
Salzburg Institute of Gordon College

As Italian premier Mario Monti recently did, politicians are increasingly calling on citizens to make sacrifices for the future of their countries. Such public invocations of sacrifice place politicians and their constituents in a state of tension at least partly because of the difficult and often contradictory connotations of sacrifice. Sacrifice, a concept of religious provenance deeply embedded in contemporary culture, can mean to offer for destruction and to make amends, to hurt and to heal, make whole, or sacred. Such oppositions at the heart of sacrifice make it a dangerous and much-fraught concept, as well as a fruitful and powerful one in numerous spheres of culture.
